From the UNLV beat writer for the Las Vegas Sun (his Twitter account):

Sources just confirmed to me that Lon Kruger was contacted by #Oklahoma, but will not interview for the position. He is remaining at #UNLV

LK still has two years left on his deal at #UNLV. No extension coming right away, but expect one to be discussed/agreed to in the future.

So, to my knowledge, that's three programs that have reached out to Kruger and been told 'thanks, but no thanks': #Utah, #OU, #NCSU

He's in his late 50s, paid well/has a good thing going at #UNLV, made a ton of money during his NBA stint. No reason to take on a project.

Who should be the leading candidate now?
